13 year old Daisy is a labrador retirever who weighs approximately 65 pounds. Daisy was used as a hunting dog but those days are over for her as her former owners moved onto a retirement home. Now Daisy is looking for her own retirement home, one where she’ll be forever loved and appreciated.
We are told by the family who took her in she’d been mostly ignored; hardly treated as a “pet” and certainly not as a family member. Daisy spent most of her life outside or being locked in the garage. Since coming to her caregiver’s home, she has smartly decided she’d much rather be inside the house than shut out! Currently she can manage a few hours before needing a potty break but we are told she is not kept inside the home when her caregivers leave the home.
Daisy currently lives with a small dog and she mostly ignores that dog. In meeting new dogs we are told she is non reactive. It is unknown how Daisy would do with a cat. She’s been good with visiting grandkids. Of course a dog her age needs to be treated with respect as she does have arthritis. She takes stairs slowly. It’s be great if she could find a home with someone who’d give her supplements for her achy joints.
This sweet girl has not had much vetting in her lifetime. All senior dogs need regular vet care! Daisy is reportedly “food obsessed”; a check of her thyroid would be helpful in addition to a senior blood panel and urinalysis. Don’t let this scare you off though! Daisy still has lots of energy for a swim and she loves to play fetch too. We’re told she loves walks but doesn’t have good recall so she must be walked on leash.
Daisy sounds a bit like an old puppy who is just excited to finally have some attention. She is described as “a goofy, affectionate” girl who likes to follow a human around when they’re home. She loves belly rubs and riding along in the car. While she may have some areas to work on, the rewards of giving an old dog like Daisy her final home will be great.
Daisy is located in Arlington, WA.
